Baked Chicken Thighs Recipe (Gluten-Free)

I really had to dig deep in the memory banks for this baked chicken thighs recipe, and I’m so glad that I did. It was delicious! I haven’t made it in years, and I came to realize there really isn’t much to this recipe at all. I was at my Dad’s last week and though he has limited gluten free ingredients and supplies, I am usually able to whip up most basic recipes. This really is an easy gluten free recipe. If you’d like to make it lower in calorie, substitute some of the butter or buttery spread for a bit of gluten-free chicken broth. Enjoy! Dad did!

  1. How many lbs. of chicken on the package on the recipe?, packages do not come in just one size please specify.

    1. Hi Divina,

      Sorry I do not recall the weight of the chicken thighs that I used. I remember it was Foster Farms which are usually packed in similar weights.

      It was a crazy time back then. I made it my father’s house when he was first diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer. He’s lived almost three years now and will be 100 in September!

      I hope this helps some.

  2. Hi there, I have a son 22. That has crones and I some times struggle with meals that make everyone smile. I have 3 kids in the 18 to24 year old area. They lost a mom and younger brother to cancer a few years ago so cooking family meals are challaging sometimes. I am cooking your dish tonight and I’m wanting gravy gluten free. Help!!

  3. I need to make this for a friend in two weeks April 9th. Will it serve 9 adults? Thank you.

    I already sent one e-mail. Hope it was received.

  4. I belong to a group that meets twice a month. One of our members cannot eat gluten products. I want to make this in two weeks. Will it serve 9 adults? Thank you!
